funny you'd never see a stickied thread say "a guide to dealing with overprotective or controlling boy/girlfriends.... they do it because they LOVE YOU!"

When parents act like control freaks to grown teenagers, it's not love, it's objectification

My parents literally want me to get all A*s in my GCSEs and they expect me to do at least 3 hours of revision a day, sometimes more. I did it for about 6 weeks, some other things happened in my social life and I had a mental break down a few weeks ago, and since then they stopped.

I consider my self lucky to have pretty strict parents...I see the other kids around my age doing whatever they want and just being jerks...And I am glad my parents never let me act like that...I would be ashamed of myself if I ever did.

If they're "overprotective" or "controlling".. it's not a good thing. And it shows a real lack of sensitivity or willingness to communicate.

While the majority of controlling parents mean well, they're still not in the right. They still need a change of perspective. And just because they aren't horrible enough to make it into "abuse" doesn't meant that the children should tiptoe around it looking for ways to be "mature" instead of making their stand (not that making a stand does any good for most kids).

So yeah, most kids in that situation are pretty helpless, whether they're mature or not.
